Described by International Piano Magazine as “one of the most gifted pianists of his generation”, Mark Viner is steadily gaining a reputation as one of Britain’s leading concert pianists; his unique blend individual artistry combined with his bold exploration of the byways of the piano literature garnering international renown.

After winning 1st prize at the Alkan-Zimmerman International Piano Competition in Athens, Greece, in 2012, his career has brought him across much of Europe as well as North and South America. Radio broadcasts include recitals and interviews aired on Deutschlandfunk and frequent appearances on BBC Radio 3. His acclaimed Wigmore Hall début in 2018, under the auspices of the Keyboard Charitable Trust, confirmed his reputation as one of today’s indisputable torchbearers of the Romantic Revival.

Mark Viner is particularly renowned for his already extensive discography on the Piano Classics label which includes discs devoted to the music of Alkan, Blumenfeld, Chaminade, Liszt and Thalberg, all of which have garnered exceptional critical acclaim. His most important project to date is a survey of the complete piano music of Alkan, the advocacy whose music led to his election as Chairman of the Alkan Society in 2014.

“Viner’s playing, impressively fleet-fingered and ripe-toned, does immaculate service.” The Sunday Times
